Walid Saad (University of Oslo, Norway), “Coalitional Game Theory for Distributed Cooperation in Next Generation Wireless Networks” (2010). Advsior: Prof. Are Hjørungnes

With the emergence of cooperation as a novel networking paradigm, the need for tools to adequately model and analyze cooperation in next generation networks is of utter interest to the research community. In this thesis, the author studies the applications of coalitional game theory, which is a main branch of game theory that studies cooperative scenarios, in the area of wireless communications and signal processing. First, the author proposes a novel engineering-oriented classification of coalitional games suited for signal processing and communications applications. Then, the author studies the usage of these games for analyzing cooperation in a variety of applications such as: (i) distributed formation of virtual MIMO systems, (ii)- distributed  collaborative spectrum sensing in cognitive radio networks, (iii) joint sensing and access in cognitive radio networks, (iv) distributed task allocation in multi-agent wireless systems, (v) distributed cooperation for physical layer security improvement, and  (vi) network formation in wireless multi-hop networks.
